Quote of the day...


A particularly relevant quote, I think, given the state of the country's affairs today and the gradual disappearance of the mythic "American Dream."

From the end of "The Great Gatsby:"

"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther... And then one fine morning -

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
-Nick Carraway
